I worked with Fortune 50 company that decide to increase their defects per million because the cost of quality was too high to achieve that level, and they could get more overall return with a defect rate that was still very good, but not as rigorous as before. If Alex could get twice as many touchdowns with twice as many INT's, that would be a great tradeoff that I would likely take. The cost of getting only 5 INT's is a pedestrian offense that requires a devastating ST and D to stay in games.
It is all interconnected. Less ints contribute to better field position, etc......which helps the D and ST stats.
If Smith doubled his TDs and INTs, who is to say that our D performs worse due to more time on the field, teams going no huddle, etc.?
OK, so more TDs would be a bad thing because Alex didn't actually throw them.
These excuses are beyond ridiculous.
